Few things in life are as fun as weddings. When two families get to celebrate love and joining together, the result is an occasion filled with joy. Any party that is built around the feeling of joy is going to be a memorable time. Last year, I got to speak at my best friend’s wedding. I told a funny story and made people laugh as I spoke about our trip to Alaska when we got stuck on a glacier. My story got people engaged.
But when you see how this father uses his speech at his daughter’s wedding, you’ll understand why everyone gasped in surprise. None expected him to reveal the secret he had kept from his daughter for an entire year in the way he did. It was downright shocking.
Fathers play a vital role in the weddings of their daughters. They walk her down the aisle, they “give her away” to the man of her dreams, and they are expected to dance with her during the reception. Fathers play an essential role in the upbringing of their daughters, so it only makes sense that they are a pivotal piece in the planning of the wedding.
Newlywed Nicole Cortez was over the moon. Her wedding had gone off without a hitch, and she was enjoying every second of it. They had transitioned from the ceremony to the reception and drinks were flowing. Then her dad took the stage and shocked everyone.
Nicole was left gapping at the surprise her dad had planned.
